Streamlight has been a proud supporter of BCRF for several years, with a donation linked to the sale of all pink flashlights being contributed. BCRF provides critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
Many of us here at Streamlight have backgrounds in the industries we serve: law enforcement, fire, military, etc. It’s no wonder, then, that the causes important to our customers are also close to our own hearts. But the organizations we proudly support go beyond just those industry groups – we also support causes that affect our friends, families and associates.
We designed special colored lights that benefit each of the following organizations, donating a portion of the sales to the cause. The distinctively colored lights also feature the organization’s insignia.
National Fallen Firefighters Association (NFFF)
The NFFF’s mission is to honor America’s fallen fire heroes, to provide resources to assist their survivors in rebuilding their lives, and to work within the fire service community to reduce firefighter deaths and injuries.
Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.)
Through events, fundraising, and emotional support, C.O.P.S. helps the families and co-workers of police officers killed in the line of duty. Along with our friends, families and associates, Streamlight is holding our 2nd annual Streamlight 5K for C.O.P.S. near our headquarters on June 8.
